Bubbly Fun!!

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy--Happy Friday to ya! Wahoooooooo--can you tell I'm thrilled the weekend is here, lol?!  Tonight is date night for hubby and I since both the kids will be at sleepovers for the evening. Dinner and a movie is in the plans--although I'm wanting to see "Letters to Juliet" and hubby is resisting the chick-flickdom, LOL!  We'll see who wins, hmmmmmmmm???  Tomorrow we're working in the yard some more, planting our tomato plants and getting flower pots for the front porch.  Then we have dinner to go to with our friends in the evening (sans kids again--wow)!  Sunday I'm taking my daughter to the mall to shop for her 8th grade semi-formal dance--yikes--hope that goes well and she doesn't drive me nuts, hee hee.  We tend to NOT always like the same things, LOL so we'll see---she has to get a sundress for graduation as well and then we'll get a bite to eat--just the girls!  So a pretty busy weekend but it will be fun and I'm liking the sun and warm weather we're having--the gray rain has gone away for the moment!  I hope you have a fun weekend ahead of you!!


-My friend Della who is the owner of I Brake For Stamps has just opened her new digi store HERE called I Brake for Digis :)  Lots of great images to be found there including some freebies for you to try out.  If you haven't tried out a digi stamp you don't know what you're missing--they're easy, quick and you can resize & flip them to your needs.  I have a digi tip sheet HERE if you have any questions about the digi stamps.

- Susana's Custom Art & Card Design is gearing up for a NEW Victoria Case release next Friday on the 28th--lots of cute summertime images!  But starting on Sunday there will be BLOG CANDY on the store blog HERE and there will be 4 lucky winners this time--so make sure to stop by and enter!


Wrapped in a Bow!!

This is my card featuring a super cute digi stamp from the new store "I Brake For Digis"--this image is called "Baby Bear in Bow".  Isn't this the cutest lil' bear? I love it and you could of course color this for a baby boy or girl.  The papers I used are from The Girls Paperie called "the girl" and were perfect to use with this cute baby image. 

**If you decide to buy any of the digi's or rubber stamps from I Brake For Stamps or I Brake for Digi's remember to use the coupon code "SAVE10SUZANNE" to get 10% off your entire order!! **

I colored the image with copics and then inked softly with my Inkssentials Blending Tool to create a soft sky.  The stamped sentiment (is hard to see in this photo) says "Cute & Cuddly" and is from the PTI set "Baby Button Bits".  I added a faux non-sewing ruffle under the image layer with scor-tape and just ruffled it and attached it by hand.  The pearl swirls are from Prima and topped off with a bow!

I traced the blanket with my stardust stickles and added them to the bib and bee wings as well.  I just love this bears cute face.  Perfect for any baby project you might have---you could resize this image to be larger or smaller for gift tags, favors whatever your heart desires.  That's what makes digis so much fun---and no storage issues either, LOL!


Okay, this started off as my TIOT Challenge Card for Susana's Store, LOL--but quickly strayed from the sketch design, hee hee.  So I just decided to go with it instead of forcing it into something it wasn't going to be KWIM!  But if you get a chance, hop over to the store blog HERE to see the TIOT Challenge Sketch and DT projects!

For this project I used a new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamp called "Bubbles"--isn't she just delish?!  I created a partial acrylic-see through card to go along with the Bubble theme.

To create this partial acrylic card, I created a card base with a transparency sheet cut to size.  Then I added a layer of dp (the bubbles dp is from Magnolia) to the back inside of the card so it would show thru the transparency in the front.  On the front I added a few strips of dp from PTI and used my MS border punch on the bottom layer.  The ribbon bow was tied with my Bow Easy and then I added some Bella Baubles along the top layer.  The sentiment is from PTI's "Wishing You" set that I stamped right onto the dp--around the sentiment layer I used my Viva Transparent gloss gel pen to create bubbles around it and then sprinkled them with Glamour Dust to make them glittery.

She's colored with Copics (BG11,BG10,BG0000,V15,V12,V000) and then I added some fun stardust stickles to her cuffs and shirt stripes.  The bubbles got a fat coat of diamond glaze so they're shiny & raised.  Just a cute card for someone special!!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and I'll see ya back here on Sunday night with Gina K previews!
